Inaugural Organ Concert


Dan Miller

Sunday / November 28th

Doors open at 4:00 pm

Concert 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Among the oldest instruments in Western music, the organ stands as quintessential of concert hall and worship music. Most frequently associated with sacred music in holy spaces like cathedrals and synagogues, you can also enjoy organ concerts in the greatest concert halls. What began as a hand‐held instrument has grown into a tremendous architectural element hailed as the "King of Instruments." Immerse yourself in this organ solo concert in an authentic cathedral setting that effectively replicates the acoustics of Gothic monasteries. Let the shimmer of the stained glass surround you as you enjoy the best organ music in the nation played on the new concert organ at the Gelman Stained Glass Museum.

The Gelman Stained Glass Museum invites you to an evening of concert music with internationally renowned concert organist Dan Miller.
